I’m very excited! If everything goes right I will get a Samsung Galaxy SIII 4G today or tomorrow.
It will be very interesting and fun to finally try Android for real. I will do some comparisons to my iPhone 5, test Android apps, do videos about it and much more.
The great thing is that this Android phone is the latest Galaxy S3 model, the 4G version, and it supports the Swedish LTE frequencies, so it will even have faster network speeds than my iPhone 5 has at the moment.
And this 4G model is also a bit snappier than the normal version because it has 2GB RAM memory instead of only 1GB.
I am very novice when it comes to Android so it will take some time for me before I can do all the advanced stuff that I want to do. For example writing in MarkDown in a Markdown text editor, blogging directly from the phone with formatting, images, links and all. Do video editing and all the other productive and creative stuff I do on my iPhone.
I will both blog and do videos about everything I learn, so you can follow my journey into Android land :)
Great times ahead!

LTE (Long Term Evolution) is a wireless broadband technology designed to support roaming Internet access via cell phones and handheld devices. Because LTE offers significant improvements over older cellular communication standards, some refer to it as a 4G. Search for more info. ↩
Random Access Memory (RAM) provides space for your computer to read and write data to be accessed by the CPU (central processing unit). It’s a form of computer data storage. A random-access device allows stored data to be accessed in very nearly the same amount of time for any storage location, so data can be accessed quickly in any random order. Search for more info. ↩
